Psalms 139:1-3 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me……… You perceive my thoughts from afar….. You are familiar with all my ways.
We are totally exposed to God. The Psalmist reminds us that each of us is fully known, with all we do, think and say. It has never been easy for people to live with this. ‘You know me’, can be frightening. Ever since Adam and Eve tried to hide from God people have devised clever tricks to camouflage their whereabouts and cover up their sins, The Bible firmly declares to things;
(a) There is nothing we can do to escape exposure to God.
(b) God despises hypocrisy; the practice of making out we are something we are not.
When we are in touch with reality there is brought before our eyes stories of people ‘found out’ Numbers 32:23 says “If you don’t do what you say, you will be sinning against God; you can be sure that your sin will track you down.” It is a God-spoken truth we all need to observe.
My life is a mess Lord, please forgive me and save me.
